- Smooth ride for a high powered car.
- Rather high maintenance costs. Oil change $1500
Purchased As New
All my children want to inherit the car. Everyone I know or see love the looks and those who get a ride in it are very appreciative.

- Great Looks - Grabs The Looks, But...
- Major Reliability Issues - Horrible Value - Beautiful Seats
Purchased As New
When I pulled up with my new Volante - yes red - my wife went bonkers - "we have babies to feed, children to put through school..." Now this was depressing but those were my daughters children not mine, but what really got me chilled was all the problems I was having with the seats, the belts always jamming, the doors unlocking by themselves - and a lack of a convenient ashtray. For the kind of money I spent, I would have thought that these kinds of cars came trouble-free. Oh, sure the dealer is nice and you can get free cup of coffee and a danish - but it still makes me so mad.
Oh yea, I wanted to share this experience I had with this cute little college kid who wanted to race me down Santa Monica Blvd - but I could not control myself - I put that baby out and let her rip! Wow oh man the looks one can get with just a little more horsepower and zeal. Anyhow, great car, very pretty, smells great, but just really not worth the money. If I could have picked this car up for the price of my daughters 2008 Jaguar, I probably wouldn't be complaining. But the reality is that I am so close to retiring and if anyone found out I was running around in a Aston Martin Volante - they would have me committed or sent back to prison. My wife of 32 years begged me to buy a Honda again - a Civic no less. I wasn't even aware they still make Civics anymore. Any how they were very reliable and for the value - on a dollar for dollar basis, I would have to say the Civic wins by a long shot. Sure you don't get the hot looks and deep penetrating smiles, but at least you get reliability and your car payment is under $4,000/month!...read morehide
